An abandoned store lies desolate in Fukushima

A supermarket (just one of the many businesses and homes) is left abandoned after one of the greatest catastrophes in Japanese history. In March of 2011, an earthquake and tsunami hit the area which caused the evacuation of more than 300,000 people. The earthquake damaged a nuclear power plant which caused a radiation leak, bringing about the entire evacuation of Fukushima. Now Fukushima is nothing but a ghost town. The residents had to flee suddenly and leave their entire lives behind them, seeking (what they thought) was just temporary shelter; but, evidently starting over.
